Abstract

A pretest for the medical competency assessment test for national license step I was divided into 3 parts. The scores, categorized by learning subjects, were notified individually at the end of each part.
The purposes of this study were (1) to investigate the effectiveness of a
self-directed learning model in order to gain higher scores; (2) to explore
factors affecting their scores.
The study was a mixed methods research. In quantitative part, all third-year medical students were included into the study. Mean, standard deviation,
percentage and non-parametric test were used for data analysis. For the qualitative part, 10 students with high GPAX were selected with purposive sampling method. Focus group interviews and semi-structured interviews were performed. We used investigator and methodological triangulation methods with content analysis to analyse final codes.
The findings were as follow: (1) there was a 19.3% (95%CI 13.6-25.1)
increased in the 2nd test mean percentage scores compared with the 1st test mean percentage scores. And there was a 26.2% (95%CI 18.9-33.5) increased in the 3rd test mean percentage scores compared with the 1st test mean percentage scores. The study suggested that scores notification helped
students recognize their weak points in a self-directed learning process. The
pretest project let them feel as staying in a virtual examination room and
stimulate them for better preparedness. In addition, a regular-type learning
style was most mentioned in students with high GPAX.
